Almost on top of the Metro station and in front of the bus station.Superior room rather small but big bathroom with bath. This was very high and there was no handrail so my husband had to act as one. I would not have been able to manage a shower in it without him due to a knee-replacement. Breakfast quite adequate...

Separate toilet from bathroom is great. Nice shelf space, and more importantly, bed is great. Very spacious for a Large hotel as well. Staff was helpful, nice,...

Stayed here for 2 nights beginning of April 2017. I always research my hotels & picked this one because it had a high rating and a great location. It was perfect! The front desk service was excellent, especially Sally but everyone was so helpful with answering our questions, making dinner reservations for us, giving directions, & even lending us an...

Hotel had a great location and from the balcony you could view the port of Marseille. under $100/night Nice room, great breakfast and located by a shopping mall and plenty of great restaurants and Gelato shops. Saturday there is a flea market right up the street. A Merry-go-round across the street and Currency changers all around. Large ferriswheel by the...

The location is, as mentioned by other reviewers, excellent. The hotel is right in the Old Port, walking distance from both the tourist sites and lots of restaurants and cafes. And that's pretty much it. We stayed in a Deluxe room, which is probably why the size was ok. Small and uncomfortable bathroom, and there was a separate toilet but...

If you want to be in the center of the city, this is the place to stay. Public transports, the Vieux port, everything is nearby. To get to the attractions that are further away I would suggest Le Petit Train whcih goes to these main sites. To see the D'If Castle, the ferry boats are just a 3 minute walk...

Fabulous location right next to the Vieux Port and all of the very average (to poor) restaurants doting it. The hotel is very clean, nice firm bed, tiny but adequate room, friendly staff and very good breakfast for 11e additional cost. Even staying on street side, the room was quiet (with the exception of sirens)! Air conditioning wasn't working in...

This hotel has a great location. It is right in Vieux Port within easy walking distance of Notre Dame and the train station. There are tons of great restaurants and bars within minutes. The room was small but comfortable and very clean. I only wish that they included lotion in the bathroom.

Next time I will try a different hotel. It took us forever to find the hotel with the Navi on the rented car and the GPS on the Smartphone, not to mention the complication of the one way streets... you have to walk to get there. We landed on the top floor and our room was large for European sites...
